Your doctor may decide to analyze your heartbeat by placing a cardiac rhythm monitor in your chest or abdomen, so we can evaluate the details of your condition with real-time information and develop the best treatment plan for you.

Overview

Our cardiologists will insert the rhythm monitor under the skin in your upper chest. During this brief procedure, we will numb the area with local anesthesia and make a small incision. Once in place, the device will record your heart’s rhythm during almost all your activities. Our specialists will download the information for examination, enabling them to determine whether you need treatment.
